What is a Mosque?

In Morocco 99.9% of people follow Islam. That means you get to see a lot of mosques around town. From our rooftop we can see a total of 5! The minaret (tower) of a mosque stands very high, so they can call people to prayer 5X a day from there. We can hear the calls every day. ⠀

As a non-Muslim we aren’t allowed to enter the mosques, but we can admire the beauty from the outside! This one is the largest in Marrakech, standing at 253 ft in height & from the year 1147. Apparently it served as a model for the Giralda Tower in Seville, Spain that we just visited last month!⠀

I can’t believe this mosque is almost 1000 years old!⠀
